My next adventure: Southern India (Chennai, Pollachi,  Kochi) – August 2024

Day 5 (Sousse) – Return to Enfidha-Hammamet International Airport

One was becoming to the soothing sound of the call to prayer at 5:30am each morning, however it was time to return to the UK today via Enfidha-Hammamet International Airport. The country’s motorway network makes traversing Tunisia’s major cities (and said airport) pretty easy hence if your taxi driver is struggling to navigate to Enfidha, simply tell them to head out to the motorway, you can’t go wrong from then on!

As expected, security outside and inside the airport is very tight akin to the rest of the country (police checkpoints are plenty around Tunisia), however, there is a positive aurora about the majority in terms of feeling safe.

After saying our farewells to Lotus Royal Move, we headed into the rather small terminal not knowing what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised by how knowledgeable the check in staff were in regards to electric wheelchairs making for a smooth process. Akin to Oslo and Yerevan, only manual wheelchairs are allowed airside, however this time we were given written confirmation that Superbunny had been loaded onto the plane. The only thing to watch out for is that battery chargers are considered to be a security risk hence you need to collect it before you board.

My next adventure takes me to Istanbul in Türkiye on the 8th April. You may be thinking how have I not travelled to said country in my 31 years of existence of being a British citizen (if you are confused by this, Türkiye is one of THE destinations for British tourists), the answer is unknown. Whilst one is in Istanbul, the plan is to also catch the YHT high-speed railway to İzmit. Of course, the hotel is conveniently located near a public transportation hub.

In the meantime, keep an eye on the YouTube channel for a wheelchairs (Superbunnys) perspective of rolling around the Sousse Ribat and Souk plus El Jem (using a portable ramp).
